Congress Needs Web 101 Lessons

from the hire-some-out-of-work-web-designers dept

A new study of Congressional websites shows that most of them suck. They’re slow, not particularly helpful, and out of date (what a great combination). Only 21 sites were deemed ok. That leaves 514 terrible Congressional websites out there. The main complaint is that they just have too much useless info and no way to find the information that people are looking for when they head to their Congresscritter’s website. I’ve been hearing more out-of-work techies I know talk about going into politics. Maybe they can start by building better websites for Congress.
